According to her statement, because of the “project “Matilda” began burning cinemas, cars, attempted bombings, calls for the burning of people, the introduction of blacklists, threats, prayer vigil believers throughout Russia against the film, rallies, cartoons, staging a strip show, making fun of saints and believers”.
Later the lawyer of film Director Alexey Uchitel, Konstantin Dobrynin reacted to the statement of the Deputy. “Natalia likes to use the concept of “provocation”. However, it is worth noting that the film “Matilda” provokes just the fact that it is very good and a good movie — a movie about love,” he told RIA Novosti news Agency.
